No one takes tacos more seriously than Avo Taco who – well, you can guess by the name – lives and breathes this delicious Mexican dish.

Dirty Taco + Tequila
If the word ‘dirty’ makes you uncomfortable when it’s used to describe food, then you don’t understand truly delicious food, which makes you forget everything in the world, including proper table manners. When you eat tacos made by Dirty Taco + Tequila, things might get messy, but you won’t care. Your hands and clothes might get dirty, but it’ll be worth it.
This hybrid of a Los Angeles taco truck and Miami liquor stand puts a twist in already-more-than-perfect classical Mexican cuisine by adding your favorite Asian flavors. Picture a corn tortilla filled with Kung Pao Chicken, Thai Salmon, Korean Short Rib, or Vietnamese Shrimp, and tell me if you can think of a creation that can top that. I doubt it. Innovate, fun, and some of the best tacos on Long Island make all of their locations super popular and sometimes tough to get into. But it’s worth the wait!
Dirty Taco + Tequila is available in three locations on Long Island – Wantagh, Woodbury, and Rockville Centre. All three are closed on Mondays, but on other days, they are open until 11 p.m.; you can find out the hours here.

DJ’s Clam Shack

Two blackened Mahi Mahi or shrimp tacos served with french fries or coleslaw cost $13 and will make a fan out of you with only one bite. Don’t like it blackened? No worries, you can have it grilled or fried instead. Besides the mind-blowing fish and shrimp tacos, you can have chicken or pork ones. They are amazing, too, don’t get me wrong, but visiting DJ’s Clam Shack and not trying their specialty (as in seafood) seems like a waste unless you are allergic to seafood; in that case, you should totally go for the meat tacos.
The opening hours of DJ’s Clam Shack are different depending on the day of the week, so pay attention. They work 11:30 a.m.-7:30 p.m. on Sundays and Mondays, 11:30 a.m. – 8 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 11:30 a.m. – 8:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

Mexican Grill 2000
Mexican Grill 2000 isn’t easy to find, but if you take the trip and take time to look for it in the strip mall, you’ll be rewarded with authentic Mexican food made with love and served hot and fresh. Lengua tacos are the best despite the minimum number of the most common ingredients (soft tortilla, cilantro, onions, and salsa) because the chef knows the perfect ratio. If you aren’t a fan of tongue tacos, go for the fish one instead – lightly breaded fresh red snapper topped with red cabbage, pico de gallo, house-made tangy sauce, and lime. Avacado salsa is also available for an additional charge.

Right Coast Taqueria
Yes, Right Coast Taqueria doesn’t serve authentic Mexican food, but they aren’t trying to because they know that nothing can beat the tacos eaten in El Salvador. Instead, their cuisine is a mix of Spanish, Mexican, Central American, and other recipes, and it somehow works and wins hearts (or should I say stomachs?). And the best thing about it is that there is no such thing as too much filling for Right Coast Taqueria. So if you are never happy with portions at other taco spots, this is the dream place you were looking for. As for a recommendation, do try Mongolian Beef Tacos – crispy beef in a sweet soy glaze, cabbage, green onions, and chili sriracha aioli. Wait, did someone say birria tacos Long Island???

Best Tacos on Long Island: North Fork
If Mattitaco existed 300 years ago, they’d be accused of witchcraft because no one can create something so beautiful using such basic ingredients without magic. And perhaps, this cute little eatery does use magic, but as long as we continue getting those delicious tacos, nobody has to know. You should definitely check out those exotic Bang Bang Cauliflower Tacos (sweet Thai chili, crispy cauliflower, mango salsa, lime aioli) and Hawaiian Tacos (stewed pork shoulder, smokey pineapple salsa).
Mattitaco is open seven days a week: 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

How do you know if a taco is good or not? Just like with burgers, if there is a mess after you finish your taco, it was probably a proper taco (unless you generally are a messy eater). And a taco doesn’t get any more proper than at the Lucia restaurant. There are seven tacos you can try – shrimp, steak, chorizo, chicken, fish fillet, veggies, and carnitas -all served with pico de gallo and spicy green sauce. And for $18, you can get the Taco Party package, which includes one of each taco. It’s an awesome deal because all Lucia’s tacos are great and it’s really hard to choose one.
The opening hours of Lucia Restaurant are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day.

This pulled slow-cooked beef that can be served on a soft or hard handmade corn tortilla with cilantro and onions (authentic style) or cheese and lettuce (American style) is simply out of this world.
When you visit Taco Bout It – and you can do that from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday to Saturday – remember that it’s cash only.

If you ever find yourself on Shelter Island craving Mexican food right this second, Maria’s Kitchen and its magical Baja Fish Tacos have your back. Don’t get me wrong, they have a very extensive menu and literally everything prepared in the restaurant turns out a culinary masterpiece, but visiting Maria’s Kitchen without trying this amazing taco is like committing a crime. The mix of deep-fried white-fleshed fish with cabbage, chipotle mayo, avocado, and pico de gallo, served on corn or flour tortilla, is just mind-blowing. Baja Fish Taco costs $9.99, but the portion is huge, so one will be more than enough.
You can get a taco from Maria’s Kitchen as early as 8 a.m. and before 8 p.m. during summer. Winter hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Best Tacos on Long Island: The Hamptons and Montauk
Coche Comedor is a great upscale Mexican restaurant in the Hamptons. It’s a bit on the expensive side but still affordable. To fully enjoy all that Coche Comedor has to offer, come for a family dinner as a big group, order several dishes from across the menu, and share.

Lucharitos, which translates as ‘little fighter’, is a local gem, and nobody can argue with that, not when you bring up the fact that the restaurant has four (soon to be five) locations across Long Island. The owners started the business with the desire to serve the community with awesome fresh food in an awesome fresh environment, and well, that’s exactly what Lucharitos represents.
If you haven’t tried their amazing food, now is the perfect time to fix that. Look up the nearest Lucharitos and go for Coconut Shrimp Tacos (coconut shrimp, mango salsa, pickled slaw, chipotle mayo, soft flour tortilla) because you don’t ease your way into great food – you jump right into it.

Taste of Asia, Asian Fusion Restaurant
Not many people would look at the T.O.A. Asian Fusion restaurant and think, “Hmm, I bet they can make killer tacos”, but if you are one of the extraordinary souls that do think that, you are right. Of course, you won’t find a variety of tacos here – in fact, there is only one kind, and it’s an appetizer – but it will be worth the weirdness of ordering a taco in an Asian restaurant. It’s three soft shells filled with Ceviche-style Maine lobster, mango salsa, cilantro, and jalapeno. These lobster tacos probably won’t make you full, but they will make you happy. Trust me, these are some of the best tacos on Long Island, even though it may not seem like the most logical place for it.
T.O.A. Asian Fusion Restaurant currently has three Long Island locations – in Farmingdale, Huntington, Sayville – and one is coming soon in Melville. Each restaurant has its own opening hours, so visit the website to find out more.
